: : : : : !) Harvard Westlake - best talent and top notch coaching
: : : : : ...long drop
: : : : : 2) Crespi - talent drop but the best coaching in the league... maybe SoCal... maybe California.
: : : : : 3) Notre Dame - If Williams stays this team will be better.
: : : : : 4) St. Francis - Not sold on all of the overhype that they're pushing but the team has to make improvements from last year. Coach Wolfson has to get it done this year. They don't have to win state. But they can't be as terrible as they've been.
: : : : : 5) Chaminade - Here's the thing. We could be 3 or 5.
: : : : : 6) Loyola - Good coaching.
: : : : : 7) Alemany - Obvious
: : : : No real feel for the league next year. Truly wondering. Why Loyola and Alemany so low when they have been in top half the last 5-7 years? Graduation? Less talent coming in?
: : : Loyola has an excellent head coach but the talent just isn't there. Alemany graduated their best guys & just like Loyola they don't have the man power.
: : : Norte Dame won't be better than St. Francis. ND has 1 D1 player but SF has 3 D3 players.
: : 1. HW, best players
: : 2. St. Francis, 3 guys that play good together. Idk if they're D3. I'd say 1 D2 & 2 NAIA. But that's 3 college players
: : 3. Loyola, coaching will get them higher.
: : 4. Chaminade, still young but solid. Future D2 guard.
: : 5. Crespi, Russell White will get 100% of what his players have.
: : 6. Alemany, Tray Meeks will get 2 decent transfers. They won't be in the top half of the league but they won't be poo poo either.
: : 7. Notre Dame, Zion is really good. He's a D1 player. But I don't see how Notre Dame doesn't struggle. They played better under the new coach but there's still a lot missing.
: I would make the case that NAIA is at the D2 level for the most part. So you saying they have 1 D2 player and 2 NAIA players is saying a lot more than they have 3 D3 players.
I'd say that 2 are D3. Andre & Jovan are D3. Whittier College, UC Santa Cruz, LA Verne. But didnt' everyone think that St. Francis was supposed to be good last year? St Francis & Chaminade will fight for the bottom slot.
